Highlighted picks from Books-A-Million expert buyers include:



"The Opposite of Everyone" by Joshilyn Jackson

"Joshilyn Jackson proves again that she is one of the great Southern storytellers. She weaves the past and the present with wit, Alabama folklore, Indian gods and unforgettable characters. Then, as in all Joshilyn Jackson novels, she adds a clever twist that you won't see coming!"

- Margaret Terwey, Books-A-Million Senior Buyer


"The Swans of Fifth Avenue" by Melanie Benjamin

"Melanie Benjamin is dishing about Truman Capote and his ‘swans,' the elite New York women he surrounded himself with during his early literary success. Historical fiction from Melanie Benjamin is always meticulously researched and beautifully written. If you're looking for a novel that moves you, mixed with some juicy celebrity gossip, then The Swans of Fifth Avenue is a must-read!"

- Margaret Terwey, Books-A-Million Senior Buyer


"Invader Zim" by Jhonen Vasquez:

"Invader Zim – Volume One picks up where the beloved cult TV Show left off, focusing on an alien who is trying to conquer Earth with the help of his super unhelpful robot servant GIR – all while avoiding being exposed by Dib, a regular kid (and paranormal investigator). This book includes new stories by Jhonen Vasquez, creator of Invader Zim, Johnny, the Homicidal Maniac and Squee!"
